News as yet is of the iuohi  fragmentary nature, and it ia difficult to arrive at any adequate  idea ot tite real extent ot tiie appalling disaster which lias over  taken thousands of people uow  fleeing in eveiy direction, homeless aud destitute.

Tho saying i������ "competition is  the lifo of trade,"-:a'nd-'this saying  is true, or it would not have endured so long. If it were not for  co.npotition we should be living  in the woods';n a state of savag-  e*y. Ages ago all men and  women led the simple life.  Th *ir chief vocation was idleness.  "When tho weather was hot the  mau eat in tho shade; as the sunshine crept to him he moved into  thu shade again. In winter he  reversed the process. When our  savage ancestor felt a pain in his  stjmach, bis simple instinct showed him that if he put things in  hia mouth and swallowed them  th j pain in the- stomach- would  leave. This low browed man's  whole object in life was to keep  from having those hunger pains,  anTTlI'3^Tn3nnior^  was in hustling for food and in  protecting his food from the other  savages. One day a man observed  thnt Uie beasts lived oh each other,  bo ho conceived tiie idea that it  would be good for him to live on  oth**/'' animals. That it would be  eswtar titan digging roots and  gathering herbs, so this man  caught nnd ato elpw-moving ani-  nuiU. do used a club to do tho  killing. Along about here competition began, for another mat  learned to throw,a club and lcil  his game. Then anothor coin-  poll tor discovered that a round  stone was a more effective weapon  than a club. These hairy . forbears of ours lived in caves until  tlio competition led up to the  building of huts, One day  ���������savage discovorod thnt while the  (���������kins of animals were hard to eat,  the)* ti������ vertholesu made a good  body ct vorlug. Another discov*  1'ii'd that if the skins were tied n-  *bout him it left his arms free to  act, This man was the iiigt tailor.

Soothe woodsman traded akin clothing with the  plainsman for grains aud herbs,  and this marked the birth of commerce. -Then dugouts and canoes  wore built, and thus our ancestors  crossed lakes and seas aud developed maritime commerce.

Price cutting, is the simplest  and most common phase of competition, but a better way to get  advantage over your competitors  ia to improve your business by  cutting oi? wastes and leaks, and  reducing nxed and fancy charges  sd you can give your customers  more quality and more quantity  'foTttarmoneyr������������������In-propor-tion���������a*i.  yon increase the vahu you give  for a dollar, just so you will find  it easier to get the dollar. Do  not regard competition as hurtful  to your business, but rather look  upon it as a pace-maker for you.  If you had ten exports working  for you studying how to improve  your business you would cert-gin)-,  get benefit from it, but probably  not enough benefit to off out the  great cost of hiring these ton ox-  parts. On the other hand, if yon  have ten competitors who are sit-  ting up nights studying how tu  improve their business, you can  get the benefit of their experience  without it costing you unything,  The world is big aiid there is  room for all, but old compensation says the prizes aro given to  tiie fittest, . lf you are a laggard,  if you are on the offensive instead  of on the aggressive, get busy,  aake up, do it now,���������Blade.  9sMm  ^m^EmmmmmmiSsam  n������mm&*^iua*m '  Synopsis  of Canaui*.u  Homestead  Begulfi tone,  Any available Dominion Land** within  tbe Railway Belt in Britiah Culnmb'ii,  mny ho howaitteadrd hy nny purson win,  is tho sole head of n family, or any nml  o?������r IB yeara of age, to Iho extent ot oat  quarter soot ion of 100 screa. moru or Ion.
